Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what type of heating system is right for me?
 This is the number one HVAC FAQ we receive. Because each home has a specific set of needs, not every heating system may be right for every home.  Heat pumps are generally installed along with central air conditioning systems, so if you are ready for the whole system overhaul, this may be the best option for you. However, there are many instances in which either an electric or gas furnace may be the better choice. The best way to find out what system suits your home best is to consult with a professional. When you come to Bob's Heating & Air Conditioning, we will send someone out to take a look at your home and make recommendations based on the layout of your house and your particular needs.
Where can I get replacement filters?
 When it comes to air conditioning FAQs, filters come up often. You can purchase replacement air filters directly from Bob's Heating & Air Conditioning. In fact, we offer a delivery service as well so you will never have to leave your home in Issaquah, Sammamish or the greater Puget sound to try and find the right kind of filter for your system.  When you sign up for our annual filter replacement programs, you will receive the appropriate filter for your system from USPS every 90 days. We offer a variety of high-quality filters, so that you can be sure to get the type and size that is right for your system. If you are not sure how to install the filter yourself, a technician from Bob's Heating & Air Conditioning will be happy to stop by and help you with removal of the old and installation of the new.
What are earthquake valves?
Earthquake valves automatically shut off the gas supply to your home in the event that major seismic activity is detected in the area. When motion of a certain magnitude is present underground, a mechanism in the valve will be triggered and cut off all gas flow to your home. The action of an earthquake can cause damage to gas lines and pipes. Cutting off the gas can help prevent any fires or explosions caused by those damages, potentially saving your home. These fires and explosions are often more damaging than the actual earthquake.
Do I need an earthquake valve?
Depending on where you live, you may be required to have an earthquake valve in place by law. However, even if it is not legally required, putting in an earthquake valve is still a good idea if you live in areas prone to this type of seismic activity. Bob's Heating & Air Conditioning has been installing these devices for our customers all around the greater Seattle, WA and Tacoma Metropolitan area for years. We would be happy to discuss your individual situation with you and help you determine whether or not an earthquake valve is a reasonable precaution for you to take.
